Maurine Alexander (12-19-17) service 12-22-17

Maurine McMurry Alexander was born in Hardin County on May 9, 1925, the daughter of the late James Otto McMurry and Ida Holland McMurry.
On Feb. 21, 1942, she was united in marriage to Grady Lee Alexander, who preceded her in death on Oct. 16, 2001.
Maurine departed this life on Tuesday, Dec. 19, at the age of 92 years, 7 months and 10 days.
Maurine attended Milledgeville Pentecostal Church. She loved her family, friends and her Lord Jesus with such compassion. At Hardin Medical Center, she was a strong prayer warrior for most of the residents, their family and the staff. They lovingly referred to her as “Granny.” Maurine never met a stranger she did not like. She would smile and greet everyone with a compliment.
Maurine is survived by her sons, Roger Lee Alexander and his wife Freeda, and Stanley Ross Alexander and his wife Glenda, all of Milledgeville; daughter, Gilda Dale Norman of Milledgeville; grandchildren, Allen Alexander, Karen Jaggars, Leann Alexander and Brandon Alexander; great-grandchildren, Cody Alexander, Colten Alexander, Laci Alexander, Brittany Jaggars, Brendon Jaggars, Megan Alexander and Madison Alexander; and a great-great-grandchild, Alayah Alexander.
In addition to her husband of 59 years and her parents, Maurine was preceded in death by her daughter, Shelby Jean Alexander; sisters, Ruby Hamilton, Cara Nell Williford and Wilma Senter; and brothers, Harold McMurry, Earl McMurry and J.T. McMurry.
Memorial donations can be made to Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center, 935 Wayne Road, Savannah, Tenn. 38372 and St. Jude Children’s Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, Tenn. 38105.
